1 Timothy 2:1-7 "Prayer in Worship"

Paul now turns from the need for sound teaching to the church, to giving instruction on worship.  It should not surprise us he does this because for a Christian to be successful in their work with Christ, it is essential to know the truths of scripture and for uplifting worship.  An important part of worship is to spend time in prayer.  Prayer is one of the wonderful privileges we have as Christians.  We come right into the presence of our Creator and place at His feet all the cares and concerns of our life and those of our loved ones.  Note also Paul says pray for those in authority.  For us that means all government officials in our nation.  I trust you are a person of prayer.  If not, let this message challenge you to become a person of prayer.
